Can we just knock it off with the Parkwood bashing all the time? If Parkwood home values are any lower , it is probably because of people like you bashing Parkwood all the time.

Again, not taking a shot at any school, just stating a fact.
Marvin Ridge has its own district now?

Can you prove that? Current market conditions disagree, which was my original point.

The condescension on this thread has gone to new levels at this point.

I will also say that many of the keyboard experts proclaiming the redistricting of 4 yrs ago that was a victory, are eating some serious crow this time around. With a side of karma....
I don't think that we're on the same page. My point is that people don't like their kids being bussed all over hell's half acre. They buy in a certain catchment because they think that their kids will go there for the duration. Since I don't live there, l won't bash any of the schools. It's the mobility that effects home values for everyone, even you.

Like I said, before the last redistricting, people were hot to trot to move to Union County. People in Union County would go into threads where questions were being asked about schools in Mecklenburg County & brag that Union County didn't redistrict.

Very quietly, Gaston County built a new high school to take pressure off two high schools & filled it, one grade at a time, before it became a problem. They're looking to do the same with building a new elementary school & a new middle school. No, I don't live there, either.

It's the threat of kids being bussed that has an effect on home values more that any particular school. I think that that's what bothers the people who you've accused of revelling in the misfortunes of others.

Again, I will agree with you on both points. No parents dont want their kids bussed over hells half acre. Thats what we had 4 yrs ago when they came up with the original plan that sent many people to the 3rd and 4th schools furthest away from where they lived. This last redistricting hopefully corrected that. UC has really good schools, all of them. Awesome schools rated higher than others, yes. Most counties have some sort of disparity between school ratings. Now some of the drama kings and queens on this board will try to twist that into “bashing”. Its not, just stating a fact that some schools are rated higher. I have been to many of the different schools across UC, they are all very good and have dedicated staff looking to always perform well. As far as the people i have called out on here, i am still waiting for answers as to why they took such glee 4 yrs ago and now eating crow this time. My guess is they will deflect and try to run around the edges, but wont respond.

I must have struck a nerve.

I am impacted this time. Our neighborhood was bounced all over the place in all the drafts created along the way, and our cluster will be significantly impacted. So yes, I do care that other people are manipulating the lives of all these kids here and across the county.

If this were all about "righting a wrong" then the BOE should have just reversed everything back to 2014. Back to the status quo. But they didn't. They took it upon themselves to impact thousands of other people that were untouched in 2014.

Little, I know you weren't moved this time or last time. You've said that about 10 times, and after the ninth it became true. I'm concerned about the kids that have been bounced all over the place in 2014 and 2018.

Weddington Chase is a ping pong ball. Millbridge was split up; so much for the theory neighborhood schools. Highgate was WES, Antioch, and almost Rea View this time. I have no clue what's going on with Providence Road neighborhoods in Waxhaw. Closest school? Not even close. And poor Wesley Oaks. They were ground zero in 2014, so I'm sure they were anxious to get back to their neighborhood school. Isn't that why they all voted and campaigned for Heintel, Maher, and Rape? (I bet they are proud of Denny.) So to "right the wrong" and get them back to their neighborhood school the BOE moved them back to Cutty. I'm sure everyone is now very hap……. Oh wait a minute. They got moved to Weddington. This is so confusing. Where was the outrage this time? They didn't get to go back to their neighborhood school. So the BOE created two wrongs instead of making a right. Strange. Do you suppose property values are higher in the Weddington Cluster than the Cuthbertson Cluster? I don't want to make any more bad predictions.

As I said before, this BOE acted just like the last BOE. They just put prettier bows on their work.

I don't remember any of them taking glee. Not one of them.

All schools? Then why are you throw shade on one? Are you good with the schools in Monroe? Every district has some stinkers & some that are better. I wasn't born yesterday.

There are schools all over the area that are rated well. My point is that since the last redistricting, I'm seeing more & more people asking about some of those other places. Stability counts. That's how I interpreted what those other posters have been saying.
